Windows Server 2012 and moving Applications to it

Guys,

I just built a virtual machine consisting of windows Server 2012 Standard 64 bit. I have Veeam installed on this server.  I also just moved Manage Engine Netflow Analyzer 9.6 to it.

Basically I have decided that this is going to be my Utility server.  I am going to move Manage Engine Application Manager next, and then I would like to move Symantec Endpoint protection 12.1, and finally move WSUS. (WSUS is running on sever 2003 so I am guessing this is going to be difficult)

Do you think all of these applications can co exists on Server 2012?  I don't have a ton of experience with it yet?

Also, how would I move WSUS from 2003 to 2012, and if it's possible?  If not how would you approach this?

Thanks!

I would build a new WSUS Server on a standalone 2012 server, not shared with anything else.

you can migrate from

Windows Server 2003 SP2 running WSUS 3.0 SP2

see here for your migration

Thanks I will look into this article then.  Is there a particular reason why?  Does WSUS not play well with other apps installed/

As you will be using virtualisation, it's safer to have a standlone WSUS server, with no additional services from other apps.
